Pop-up favourites Groats find a new permanent home on St Stephen Street.
It’s almost all about the oats here – porridge to be precise, in all manner of lush combinations. After popping-up for stints at Williams and Johnson Coffee and Artisan Roast, the Groats team have now found a more permanent base on pretty-as-a-picture St Stephen Street in Stockbridge. It's a serene space, with big picture window (big enough to sit in) and Scandi-chic décor; walls of bare stone and distressed paint; pale wood floors, benches and tables; and a few artistically strewn throws and cushions. The focus is firmly on an ever-changing list of porridge creations, with the pear and caramel version silky, sweet and creamy. If the oats don't grab your fancy, though, try a tempting plate of cottage cheese, ham and soft poached egg with rye sourdough or maybe just a thick slice of chocolate babka cake.
